Oh Times Union, why do you continue to be the mouthpiece of terrible conservative anti-Union anti-job anti-stateworker rights organizations like the ‘Citizens Budget Commission’?
If we were real journalists we might actually uncover how your owners or boards of directors were on or contributed to these awful organizations, which are the ones you increasingly help to publish the biased findings of (when was the last time you showed a NYPIRG study about the costs of not covering benefits or a CSEA article noting how little the majority of state workers actually make?). You’re very lucky we’re not, but then again you did fire all your real journalists several years ago when you got rid of your own Union. At least change your title; the irony of the fact that Union is the second part of your name is one of the reasons we just can’t stop criticizing your bafflingly unfair assessments and attacks against those that read your biased publication.
Bottom line is; why do you hate your audience? We’re certain a large percentage of your readers and subscribers are state workers. Yet you continue to publish pieces that denigrate them, say they make too much money, they’re bankrupting the government, etc.
